Screenshot Contest: Chance to have your screenshots turned into a STO loading screen!
 
Hello Captains!

For the first time ever, we're holding a 'Screenshot Contest'! Have an in-game screen that you've taken that you think should be displayed in-game as a loading screen? Submit it today for a chance to have it selected!


Contest Begins: Now
Contest Ends: Wednesday, March 12, 2014



Types of images we'd like to see:

  • Beautiful environment AND a focal point, which means:
    • Ships and characters are a must
    • We are more likely to pick 2409-themed outfits and ships that have canon or stock configurations and paint jobs
    • KDF, Rom and Fed characters and ships are all welcome
  • Battle/action shots are also welcome
  • No UI or UI looking FX playing on the character/ ship/ etc.
    • You can use alt+F12 to turn off the UI to compose a shot, or use the appropriate screenshot command (see below)



Contest Rules:

  • Participants may submit one (1) original, unaltered* in-game screenshot every seven (7) days
    • The image should be linked in a reply to this post -- this will count as an official entry. If you are posting the link in [IMG][/IMG] tags, please also be sure to include the direct link to the image.
  • The image should be a minimum size of 1280x800.
    • To take an image that is sized larger than your monitor, you can try using the "renderscale" chat command: /renderscale X
      • X = the scale number (i.e. 1.5 = 150% of normal scale, 2 = 200%, etc.).
      • It's best to start at 1.5 to see if your machine can handle the larger render.
      • Going over 3 is not recommended as most machines will be unable to support it and your game will crash.
        • Don't forget to revert back to the original scale after taking your screen! /renderscale 1
        • For advice from our art team on taking screenshots, check out this archived post.
  • We'll select images from this thread to be displayed as an in-game loading screen. Those chosen will have a small text credit on them with the player's @handle displayed, so be aware of that when entering -- there is a chance your @handle will be displayed on a loading screen.
    • Submitting an entry means you agree to this.
  • Winning images will be selected by the PWE Community Team and STO Art Team.

* The image should have no photoshop or similar work done to it by players. Feel free to use demorecord tool -- more info on it can be here.



Good luck, and let's boldly go where no one has gone before!


Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

Oldie, but a goodie. Fittingly, it's titled "Strange New Worlds." Took it on one of the random maps in an Exploration mission.

I've always liked this one, as it's clean and sharp and the planet is a wonderfully bold backdrop.

Just a cruise..
 
Took this while doing the Defera dailies...the background alongside my polaron charged Scimitar just looked awesome.

Just thought I'd remind everyone of this.

There are a few pictures I have sitting around which could work but I'll start off with this one.

Reminder, please read the instructions in the OP :) If you're going to use the [IMG] tags, a direct link to the image is also needed to be considered.

Cheers,
